The flip side of what we did last week means that here we will have to stretch ourselves. This time instead of focusing inwards we will have to focus outwards. This time we are looking at external conflicts.
W.P. # 178 Write a scene where someone is either trying to convince your protagonist to do something that they don’t want to do, or your protagonist is trying to convince someone else, a friend, lover, spouse, child to do something that they do not want to do. It can also be more than one person.
Here’s to a great week filled with mystery and excitement. Hope your days are filled with love and joy and great memories. Every day take a chance on yourself and your work. And above all keep writing.
Have an enjoyable and productive week!
Good writing is not just about scene and description. Instead it also involves setting, and conflicts. In this piece we will focus on internal conflicts.
W.P. # 177 Write a scene or an internal monologue where your character is trying to convince himself or herself to do something that he or she does not want to do.
